in the last years of military rule, united states sanctions were blamed for all the economic ills of burma. not just the economic ills but other ills as well, and there is great eagerness for these sanctions to be removed. on my part i do not think we need to cling on to sanctions unnecessarily, because i want our people to be responsible for their own destiny and not to depend too much on external props. we will need external help, we will need the help of our friends abroad, from all over the world, but in the end we have to build our own democracy for ourselves. and we would like u.s.-burma relations to be founded firmly on the recognition of the need for our own people to be accountable for their own destiny. we need the kind of help that has been given to us by the united states historically in the fields of education and health and the fields of humanitarian aid. our education system is in a shambles. many of our people are barely educated. 15% of our children do not go to school at all, and of the rest hardly 20% make it through high school. so burma's educational system is in dire
: former president of the united states, bill clinton, his speech hasn't been vetted by the obama team. all of the speeches except for clint eastwood. we want to make sure they stay on message. is it another loose cannon and look at what bill clinton said in the last three months, he's disagreed on major policies like extending the bush tax cuts and not having a millionaire's tax. the president wanted that. and he said romney had a stellar business career. i >> brian: he writes long hand on yellow paper. it is not like can i go on long hand. i am writing it out. they have an idea roughly of what he's going together. he's confident yet nervous about the content. >> steve: i read that on cbs and i read that the senior democrats are nervous. bill clinton and barack obama do not like each other and there is a blockbuster report out of the new yorker that has a quotation from 2008,oon arcticle by rina liza, bill said to ted kennedy when he was trying to get kennedy to support clinton. a few years ago he would be carrying our bags, referring to the president of the united states. it is out there

demonstrated a willingness to tackle long- term debt problem of the united states. i think he is prepared to do that and prepared to push through a plan if we make some amount of progress in this election, but i assume he will be a great second-term president. >> i agree with melody, i think the election will be very close, but i believe the president will be reelected, because i do not think this country wants to go back to the policies being advocated by the mitt romney/paul ryan ticket to a place where we're talking about reducing taxes on middle income people. a place where we're reducing regulation in a way that opens us up to the same abuses that got us into the financial crisis that led to the recession we are still climbing out of. i do not think women want to go back to a place where health care choices is something that is problematic. where our environment is at risk, because we do not have an energy policy that recognize the needs for clean, alternative sources of energy. i do not think the country wants to go back to that place. i do a thing when the president reelected, one of the

on, good jobs. right here in the united states of america. [applause] when it comes to the health of our families, barack refused to listen to those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day. another president. he did not care whether it was the easy thing to do politically. that is not how he was raised. he cared that it was the right thing to do. [applause] he did it because he believed that here in america, our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine. our kids should be able to see a doctor when they are sick. and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or illness. [applause] and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. [applause] that is what my husband stands for. when it comes to giving our kids reeducation they deserve, barack knows that like me and so many of you, he never could have attended college without financial aid. and believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our market. we

opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader

romney. [video clip] >> when you are president of the united states, your president of all the people, not just the people voted for you. you heard the president say so many times, because he deeply believes this, that we are in this together, all of us. from the time he began his career in public service, from the time anyone in this room first heard of him in 2004, his message has been about the fact that what unites us as americans is far greater than the things that divide us. and that is fundamental to who this president is and to what to guide him as he makes decisions. host: another comment from facebook -- one more comment from twitter this morning -- tch fromgo to mi atlanta. caller: let's look at romney 10 years ago. he was a liberal, he was governor of a liberal state, he was pro-abortion. he created romneycare, which is what we have now, like obamacare. mitt romney cannot run on anything other than the pandering he has been doing for the last 10 years and his goal to get into the white house. when he said to the room of people should not shock anybody, because all he is se
and powerful housing project in the united states, that is the mortgage deduction. it's just that maybe 80% of it is going to go to those making over $100,000 a year. our state legislature doesn't have to, as they did just a few weeks ago, cut $350-something million to wealthier corporations, as they decide to cut in half the allocation to food banks, giving everything that's going on -- given everything that's going on in north carolina. so i do think we have an economic deficit and we have a money deficit as well. >> ray, it's amazing to me that we have managed in the process of our lives together to take off the table from any kind of intelligent conversation whatsoever a military budget which has no relationship whatsoever to what faces us as an international threat, that we are paying in our military side as if we faced five russians simultaneously in the soviet union days and need to keep raising that budget, democrat and republican. now, look, if the wise men of the simpson bowles commission or the bowles-simpson commission really were serious about what they were doing as opposed t
it is going to be. and will the united states and the remainder of the nato forces will be able to achieve the right numbers of afghan security forces in the time that is allotted in order to facilitate that departure as you indicated. so the key question is, does this now put the u.s. departure on to a different time line and that is more of a political discussion than it does the realities on the ground. as you well know, and you have been embedded with these guys before. >> the one thing that they kept talking about is that they complained that the afghans were abandoning their posts, and they complained that they weren't reliable. that, these were, you know, uneducated, but they did not say, these guys are attacking us. and now you have that kind of lack of trust between the two individuals and how do you ever get that back? >> well, you truly have to keep working at it. you are absolutely spot-on. you can get it back. it can be reclaimed, the issue becomes one of trust and counter intuitively what is happening is that through the implementation of some of the new changes is u.s. and n

excited to reelect this president as president of the united states. he's got to give them the talking points to remind folks he's done what no other many was able to do in passing the health care act. he has to talk about the ways he stood strong against a congress, that would have allowed student rates to double. when he's talking about a tax increase, it's a return to historic norms, that where we are right now basically allows the wealth jest americans off the hook from paying their fair share. i think the message is we have to move all together. irges what do you think about this question, are you better off and how it's being answered? >> ultimately there's a lot of ways to say we are better off, but we're in a situation of moving towards being much better off. so let's take, for example, the affordable health care act, the president's signature piece of domestic legislation. there are many families who can right now say yes i am demonstrably better off today as a result of the affordable care act, but he's also got to remind folks that most of those provisions have not yet kicke

make him shudder. >> i shudder as a gun owner, seeing his record when he was in the united states senate, what would he do if he never has to face the voters ever again? the next president will appoint a lot of different judges and these are lifetime appointments. if you want to make sure that judges respect our 2nd amendment rights you need a president who respects those rights as well. >> dave: in the president's defense he has not touched gun legislation in any way, shape or form, but of course the fear is, from paul ryan and folks, if you give him four terms-- another term, four years, unchecked without having to face this, maybe he'll touch gun legislation. there's been no indication of that in the last three years of yet. >> alisyn: and he's saying what candidate obama said in 2008 reveals his true thinking about it. >> dave: and that was of course at a private fundraiser with a camera he didn't realize was there. >> alisyn: when will we learn. >> clayton: the 47% comment. that's where that came from. >> alisyn: in other words, phones now have cameras on them? >> shocking, i
. >> absolutely. notwithstanding what any poll may say, the president of the united states is making this address thursday night we feel very confident that the stadium will be full. and so it's really more about the weather than it is about whether you're going to fill a stadium or not. he is the president, making one of the most important speeches given where we are right now at this time. no doubt that the stadium will be full. certainly you don't want people rained on. >> can i ask about the enthusiasm number. you're my numbers guy. so you're prepared for the whole morning. i'll throw it your way. >> what does that really mean? if you look at the enthusiasm numbers the number foreenthusiasm for mitt romney i think is 51% when they asked republicans and when i do anecdotal questioning, everybody seems to be like -- on this election overall. is it a measure of incumbent that people are less enthusiastic or overall? >> i think it's right that it is a measure of overall. this is not a history-making election in the way that 2008 was history-making election. you knew that there was going to be a n
